with this country's foreign policy in dealing with iraq and afghanistan? if you are not satisfied, what you think president obama should consider in a way of changes? >> i am not satisfied. as a libertarian, i seek a world at peace with other nations. i look to thomas jefferson's quote for inspiration. america should stop acting as the world's policeman. i do believe in a strong national defense, but the optimum word is defense, not offense. we do not have the money to continue the wars. our money could be more wisely spent here at home. >> todd akin. >> it is important to have a foreign policy to start with. you have to have some basic principles, the guidelines. that needs to an acute -- include iraq, afghanistan, a whole lot of other countries as well. the problem is we have not had that. what it seems like the vacillating policies we have almost punished our friends and helped our enemies. we decided to turn our backs on two of our allies, the czech republic and poland. we had plans to build missile defense. we gave that is a concession to russia. how much has russia helped us with iran? how

was a striking scene in the iraq war. i had to find out more about the story and as i interviewed scores of american and iraqi colleagues they came to realize that perhaps his story is critical to understanding america's role of the world stage in the post-bin laden, post arab spring area and maybe even to discover more about what it truly means to be an american. the historical impact of what travis and patrick did as a colleague was rather -- patrick and was a key in the iraq war. infect the war began to turn around in mid-2006, once before the famous surge started happening as patriquin and his military and intelligence colleagues helped iraqis launch something called the awakening which was a sunni tribal revolt against al qaeda. al qaeda of course had never really conquered and held a large piece of territory in the world. there were some exceptions, but what happened in anbar province was al qaeda basically conquered the province and they set up a parallel government, sharia law, courts, a parallel ministry even of government and the rule of this version of radical, radical islam o

today noticed since that speech, more than 900 soldiers have died in iraq. >> so that was this date in the campaign in 2004. this date in the campaign in 2008, even though we were right in the middle of the meltdown of the financial sector, still at the center of the campaign in 2008, at the first debate between john mccain and barack obama, which was this date four years ago, the focus was the war. in fact, both wars. >> do you, senator mccain, much has been said about the lessons of vietnam. what do you see as the lessons of iraq? >> i think the lessons of iraq are very clear that you cannot have a failed strategy. thanks to this great general david pa trm pa tray yous, they succeeding and winning in iraq. >> whether we should have gone into the war in the first place. six years ago i stood up and opposed this war. we hadn't finished the job in afghanistan. we hadn't caught bin laden. we hadn't put al qaeda to rest. and as a consequence, i thought that it was going to be a distraction. now, senator mccain and president bush had a very different judgment. >> so that was this date,
and fought alongside this country prosperous soldiers in iraq and afghanistan -- this country's bravest soldiers in iraq and afghanistan. like all veterans, i swore an oath to defend this country. our country made a promise, too. a promise to support us overseas and to fight for us when we came home. i am here tonight to say that president obama has kept that promise. >> yes, sir! >> i noticed -- i now live with my wife and son in the great state of colorado. many of the men and women with whom i served never returned home. others came home bearing visible and invisible scars of battle. when they and their families needed help, our commander in chief was there for them. from extending veterans benefits to strengthening the v.a. health system, president obama knows that the military is the standard for american values. it was wrong that men and women that i served with could be told that they were not good enough just because of their sexual orientation. [applause] soldiers that i trusted with my life and fought alongside with could be discharged simply because of who they loved. preside
officer. host: have you traveled overseas? caller: i have done two tours in iraq and two in afghanistan. host: what about president obama leaving iraq and planning to leave afghanistan? aq, he should've gotten a status of forces agreement with the government over there and we should of maintains an air base so we would have a presence. now we have left and recently there were saying how many shipments of weapons from iran are flying over iraqi airspace into syria to support the assad regime with all the atrocities committed over there. in terms of afghanistan, joe biden was the only person in washington who got afghanistan right from the beginning. if you look at the debate with the obama surge happened, when we were going to decide between $10,000, 40,000, and 80,000 troops, it was joe biden, he was the only one who said that, let's stick to our issues and our priorities. i was wounded in afghanistan during a a non-transmission, walking down the street in a dusty village that we were being pulled out of. i was nearly killed for essentially nothing, trying to bring some kind of ideal of

across the middle-east with anti-u.s. protests, spreading to iran, iraq, lang badesh and morocco. in yemen, the u.s. ermbassy was breached when hundreds of demonstrators converged in front of the diplomatic post. according to witnesses, the protest turned violent as rioters stormed a wall set fire to a building inside the compound and raided the place n. iran, protesters outside the swiss embassy, which looks after u.s. interests shouted "death to america!" in iraq, hundreds of shiite radicals took to the streets in baghdad and threatened violence to the united states. we are learning that the libyan government has arrested four men suspect in the deadly attack on the u.s. embass nebenghazi on tuesday. now, that took the life of four americans. libyan officials are telling us that more suspects are being sought. fears are intensifying that another wave of violence could be coming as protesters are scheduled to storm the streets again tomorrow. once again, this is a live look at pictures of the ongoing violence outside of the u.s. embass necairo. our reporter is standing by with t
, but we have made some very clear red lines there. >> people will say this is very reminiscent of iraq. you have a bad guy who is believed to be in the process of either developing or has wmd. we know what happened with iraq, that that intelligence was flawed. can america, can the world, risk another flawed military action if it turns out ahmadinejad is actually telling the truth? >> first of all, it's very different from iraq. i personally never saw any intelligence that was at all persuasive on the nuclear issue. i wanted the inspectors to go in there for a simple reason. when the first gulf war was over, we began an accounting of all of saddam's weapons of mass destruction, which mostly consisted of chemical warheads and chemical and biological agents. in 1998, when he kicked the inspectors out, there were two biological agents and two chemical agents, a substantial quantity unaccounted for. we bombed, the u.s. and uk. after 9/11, i thought it was important for the inspectors to go in, try to find out whether we had destroyed that or not. we later learned when he was deposed that it
don't know about that as someone who lives in downtown manhattan. a lot of us which the iraq war had never happened, but i think had 9/11 not hand, they would have found a way to have the iraq war anyway. you could make the argument that thanks to the work of our troops, and this president, that terrorism has been neutralized more than ever. >> but we don't have hab us corpus now. >> there's that too. for me it is a day that always will remind when people are screaming which side are you on with us or the terrorists. i like to say i'm on the side of anyone who is trying to solve the problems peacefully. >> right. any -- any religion that wants to end violence is fine as long as it's christian. that's your point. >> john: yes as long as it's christian. because violence is okay when my side does it. not religion is responsible hard core right-wing fundamentalists are responsible. >> right. >> john: we see it -- we saw it 11 years ago with the predominantly saudiw terrorists. america was attacked by zero iraqi, and zero afghans. >> yes and the worst attack happened wit
demonstrated the courage to oppose the war in iraq, as president he showed the determination to bring our troops back home. [ applause ] barack obama is the kind of leader my father wrote about in "profiles and courage." he doesn't just do what is easy, he does what is hard. he does what is right. my father couldn't run for a second term. it was left to his brothers, his family and the generation they inspired to fight for the america they believed in. now it's up to a new generation our children's generation to carry america forward. so let me say to the young and the young at heart, barack obama is only president because you worked for him because you believed in him because uconn vinceed your parents to vote for him. young people have always led america towards a brighter future. it happened in 1960. it happened in 2008 and if you show the same spirit in this election as you did in the last, i know that we'll make history again on november 6. thank you. [cheers and applause] >> woodruff: caroline kennedy daughter of late president john f kennedy, niece to the late senator ted kennedy.
to take on iraq and afghanistan. al qaeda is nothing more than an interdependent ngo of a very pernicious kind. tavis: interdependence, we heard some of this at the rnc, and we have heard some of that at the democratic convention this week, but speak to me about this notion, this gospel of american exceptionalism that some americans are still preaching. >> tavis, that is such an important question. politicians have to do it. when president obama was elected, he had made a speech where he talked about america is part of the world, and he went to istanbul and cairo in his first year and talked about independence and the need to work together, and he was punished by the media and his own party, and the result is he talks mainly about america, we are number one, god bless america, and i do one god to bless america, but i want them to bless the whole world. the focus on the american exhibition where, first of all, every nation thinks it is exceptional. in switzerland, they talk about it, and in france, they talk about it that the french think similarly. and this does not mean that we are excep

, which clearly is and there are armed groups all around, it's almost like iraq or afghanistan, where those embassies have to provide really firm security around the ambassador. and you know that. around iraq and afghanistan. they hire not even local security guards. they get nationals have other countries. mongolians and other countrys to work so they don't get paid off to get out of there. >> guest: baghdad, and kabul are the gold standard in terms of defending embassy people and staff and consuls and certainly in the embassy, itself. the reality is, we would not say this, but we know the situation is so volatile and the threat is so high in those countries that are own security forces capable of defending the institution, regardless of the capacity of the security forces. security forces grew in capacity over the years and they were able to hem us. i think when we determine the investigation of what took place here we will find out that we should have had a much largeer and capable security force of our own, protecting that consulate. >> bret: how does this happen, do you think, ge
'm saying he's responsible for failure in afghanistan and iraq. iraq is now disintegrating, al qaeda is coming back. we didn't leave a residual force in afghanistan, he overruled his military advisers on several occasions, including 30,000 instead of 40,000 for the surge and accelerated withdrawal dates and now we have a situation where taliban and our enemies know we are leaving, and the whole premise, was to train afghans to turn over these responsibilities to them, and leave. now how can we train and work with these people if so many them are killing americans we can't even train and operate with them? by that policy, it has been an abject failure. >> we'll talk more with senator mccain about domestic issues a bit later in the program. first, bob baer and fran townsend. fran, served as a member of the cia external advisory committee, and last month visited libya with her employer, mccannkancan forbes. he said that there were security concerns. >> we had a long conversation, especially with darna, to the east of benghazi, and he was aware of the increased threat. we talked about th
is responsible for the attacks in benghazi? >> no, he is responsible for our failure in afghanistan and iraq. we left iraq, and it is now disintegrating and al qaeda is coming back. we didn't leave a residual force, which we should have. and in afghanistan he overruled the military advisers on several occasions including 30,000 instead of 40,000 for the surge accelerating the withdrawal dates and now we have this situation where the taliban and our enemies know we are leaving and the whole premise was to train afghans in order that we could turn over these responsibilities to them and leave. now, how can we train and work with these people if so many of them are killing americans that we can't even train and operate with them? by that policy, has been an abject failure. >> we will talk with senator mccain about domestic issues, including the 47% statement. joining us now is fran townsend a cnn contributor who is a former cia security council advisory member. as i said, you met with ambassador stevens. he had told another source that he was on the al qaeda hit list, that there were security conce
